Thursday Ride: 20th October 2016


A larger number of 9 responded to the enticing prospect of riding with gradient amnesiac Dave. Role call as follows: Karen, Julia, myself (Belinda), Bryan, Barrie, new Phil, new Dave and Tuesday Paul.

We headed for Bike Beans via the most convoluted route known to man; taking in both How lane and the drag up to Kingswood, mainly because Dave “felt like it”. Both Julia and Phil turned for home before we reached the cafĂ© where hopalong Mark, Mieke and Jon were waiting for us. I had a lovely slice of cherry Bakewell cake which set me up for the ride home. We rode back through little Switzerland where Barrie and Bryan had a free ride courtesy of my wheel, leaving me with a knee trembler! Boxhill next, Barrie, myself then Bryan up first then home via Kingswood. I had 46m on my speedo, 13.2 mph ave , lovely ride. Thankyou Dave.
